In light of its continued efforts to share knowledge on RWH best practices in the Caribbean, the GWP-C is pleased to announce the release of a series of new RWH resources which can be found in its updated online Caribbean Rainwater Harvesting Toolbox which carries a new web address: www.caribbeanrainwaterharvestingtoolbox.com.
Most of the new resources within the RWH Toolbox are the outputs of a recently held Rainwater Harvesting Knowledge Network Forum hosted by GWP-C in partnership with GEF International Waters Learning Exchange and Resource Network, GEF Amazon Project Caribbean Aqua-Terrestrial Solutions (CATS) funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development through the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the Environmental Health and Sustainable Development Department and the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA).

GWP-C has also updated its existing Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) Travelling Demonstration Model. The first version was done in partnership with the Caribbean Environmental Health Institute (CEHI) now subsumed under the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) in 2010. The updated of the RWH Model has been designed and built by GWP-C in partnership with CARPHA, the Water Resources Authority (WRA) of Jamaica (WRA), and the National Institute for Higher Education, Research Science and Technology (NIHERST) of Trinidad and Tobago (NIHERST).
Get all the details on the new GWP-C Rainwater Harvesting Model here.
GWP-C has also been working with NIHERST to roll out a RWH programme for rural communities in Trinidad. Lessons and Success stories from this programme can be found here.
Some technological advances have come about through this programme in Trinidad, such as the design and use of an additional filtration basket on the top of storage tanks. Read more about these technological advances here.
